A Few Finished Pieces

Here are a few that came out of the Deli Paper Print series.  I have, at this point, about sixteen in the works, some of which will come to conclusion.


 

 

 The following are still works in process.





I am really excited about the layering, making marks, scraping back, painting over, creating texture.  I am not limiting these pieces to a specific set of techniques.  They did all happen to start with the deli paper prints, but could just as easily start somewhere else.  I'm really enjoying seeing how space develops: flat space and layers of depth.  These shapes keep emerging, so I'm going with it.  Shapes, scribbles, grids...

  1. These are terrific! There's so much going on with them, and I see something different every time I look. I really love the scrapings and markings and drippings and layerings - it's all good! What's not to love here!

  4. Beautiful. Love the oval-oid shapes. The neutral palette is given a richness/warmth by the hints of warm yellows/browns.

    1. It's the "spritz and blog" technique, shown on my DVD, in my book "Collage with Color", and somewhere in my tutorials and videos (see tabs at top).

      BTW, the comments below I deleted because they were spam - some company trying to sell me something - not because I just didn't liked them. I changed my settings to avoid future spam.

  10. These pieces are absolutely beautiful. I have just discovered gel and am enchanted with the effects, and so passionate about seeing things thru other things. here is the first in a collage series on boards, based on Indian dance mudras. http://wswendystegall.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/kapittha-mudra-small-file.jpg?w=500&h=484
